I dont think Ashraful was ever in the top 20 that I was aware of. Did he ever? Shakib on the other hand has been performing since he was 17 years old. He has been performing at every age level... so performance is not something that he just does it for fun... He does it because thats "normal" to him vs. scoring runs for Ashraful is a big thing. He will exemplify his few runs whenver he gets them... that is not Shakib. Dont want to praise him too much but I have been following Shakib for a while now and other than his Test debut months,, he has always been performing without any dip in form. He is not the same breed as others...
